George W Bush stated amongst other things that by 2025 he wants to cut USA's dependency on middle eastern oil by 75%. This will be done by investing in technology to create 0 emmission coal power plants, wind and solar technology and clean safe nuclear energy. The President is expecting more research into creating better batteries for hybrid vehicles, along with more advanced research on hydrodgen and ethanol not only from corn, but from woodchips and grass within 6 years.
I am particularly fond of hydrodgen technology and would like to note that BMW is well advanced in their research and will be releasing a hybrid hydrodgen / petrol engined vehicle to the public (probably USA) within the next 4 years.
The State of the Union is still being presented by President Bush. I hope you get to see it.
